1 April 2022, Repair Kopitiam Singapore (RKS) was granted funds from SG Eco Fund to build a resilient repair community at the Lor Lew Lian Cluster of apartment blocks.
During the start of the pandemic, most were caught unaware and unprepared. Repair Kopitiam Singapore (RKS) was not spared and faced a myriad of challenges. Although the difficulties were paramount but RKS communities were also needed more than ever.
The hard truth was that pandemic or not, sustainability was not something that will fix itself. More waste streams were generated, more demand for survival means more ignorance to sustainability, many faced life challenges during the heart of the pandemic.
OUR SOLUTION FOR RKS
At Repair Kopitiam Singapore (RKS), we introduced the time slot booking and redesigned our training programs to fit the demands of today. We expanded from 3 locations in end 2019 to 6 locations by end 2022. We knew it was not a complete fix but it got things going with smaller classes and being able to take half the visiting crowd whilst spending lots of money on health and safety protocols.
OUR REPAIR KAMPUNG SINGAPORE (RKgS) PROPOSAL
The idea (supported by SG Eco Fund) was to understand the challenges in a small residential cluster and build a RKS repair community within. RKgS is RKS with added capabilities in home safety, neighbourhood handyman services, regular DIY Classes and sustainable workshops, and many more group community resilience activities to help bring back the kampung spirit stronger than ever. RKgS will become the new blueprint of a sustainable community in Singapore.
